What is a Queen Size Memory Foam Mattress?
Longer and wider than a Full size, but narrower than a King size, a Queen sized mattress is 60″ wide and 80″ long. It is the same length as a regular King, but 4″ shorter than a California King. The standard mattress sizes are as follows:
SIZES — DIMENSIONS (IN) — DIMENSIONS (CM)
Crib — 27” X 52” — 68.5cm X 132cm
Twin — 39” X 75” — 96.5cm X 190.5cm
Twin XL — 39” X 80” — 96.5cm X 203.5cm
Full — 54” X 75” — 134.5cm X 190.5cm
Queen — 60” X 80” — 152.5cm X 203.5cm
King — 76” X 80” — 193cm X 203.5cm
Cal King — 72” X 84” — 183cm X 213.5cm
Queen and King sizes were introduced in the 1940s by American mattress manufacturers. Twin and Full sizes were the norm then. The new standards did not gain popularity for another decade, however. Bed Times Magazine provides a History of King and Queen Mattress Sizes here.
Why Choose Memory Foam?
Memory foam provides a number of advantages over standard coil mattresses. The material is at once both firm (providing proper support) and yet able to conform to the body shape of the user, thus evenly distributing one’s weight on the mattress. This property, known as visco-elasticity, varies based on the particular manufacturing method used. For a more in-depth look at the production and science of memory foam, see our dedicated page: What is Memory Foam?
How expensive are Memory Foam Mattresses?
A queen size memory foam mattress will -on average- come at a higher price point than a similar spring coil brand. But there is a wide price variation since the technology is now used by numerous manufacturers, allowing for marketplace competition. Below are our featured brands. We have dedicated pages reviewing a number of manufacturers.
Isn’t Memory Foam Unhealthy?
There are now numerous ways to manufacture memory foam. However, the base material is polyurethane. To this gas is infused to create a foam. Other substances, such as various forms of gel, can be added to produce particular characteristics in the resulting material, such as greater aeration or cooling. Memory foam has, over the years, developed a negative reputation due to the phenomenon of off-gassing, whereby foul smelling chemicals used in manufacture evaporate from the material, sometimes producing headaches or allergies. However, there are now many advanced methods of manufacture which avoid this problem entirely. For more on possible health problems, see our dedicated article: Is Memory Foam Toxic?
Are There Different Types of Memory Foam?
There have been great advances in the last decade in the production of mattresses and products in the bedding category. In the case of memory foam, many differing production methods are now used to provide a wide variety of materials. Gel infused products; metal infused foam; combinations with material such as latex are all now possible. Thus it is now easy to obtain mattresses that have a cooling effect on your body or that absorb and nullify the motion of a partner lying on the bed with you, to give two examples.

Queen Size Memory Foam Mattress Prices
Memory foam mattresses come at a higher price point than standard inner coil spring models. This is understandable given the higher cost of manufacture. Within the niche, prices vary widely depending on the type of foam used, the material of the layers of the product as well as whether the mattress is entirely of memory foam rather than a hybrid.
A queen size model can range in price anywhere from a low in the range of $150 to highs in the range of $2,000 for luxury brands. We are featuring here, models across the full price spectrum.
